The first two months of pregnancy are crucial for the attachment of the placenta to the uterus. It is best to avoid any sexual activity and heavy work during this period.

Brief Answer:
Can cause pain and bleeding.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Having sex can cause pain in abdomen or mild bleeding. If nothing has happened then the baby is safe. You can confirm this after an ultrasound scan.
Hope my answer is helpful.

Needs ultrasound scan.

The reddish lub is worrisome. It indicates a threatened abortion. An ultrasound scan is needed to find out if the baby is well or not. Do consult a gynecologist at the earliest.
